Home of the Fandrich Vertical Action that plays like a grand.

Every piano should be a joy to play for pianists of every skill level, but particularly for beginners.

A sure way to inspire the beginning player is to provide an instrument that is fun and rewarding to play. Having to struggle with a non-responsive action and unpleasant tone quickly dampens a beginner's enthusiasm, because the best efforts never seem musical.

It is natural to assume that a new piano of reputable make will be musical. In reality only the finest and most expensive pianos, mostly German and top-of-the-line Japanese, have well developed tonal designs and are actually completed at the factory to the extent that they can be played musically. Nonetheless, most less costly pianos are represented as having a great tone, a responsive action, etc., because less than 5% of piano sales involve experienced pianists who know a musical piano when they play one.

Most of the piano market consists of people who don't play much, if at all, buying for someone else, such as a child. They usually end up purchasing a piano that looks good, has a recognizable brand name and is bargain priced. The most common result is that the player, often a child, soon tires of the instrument, not realizing that their loss of enthusiasm is due to a poorly prepared and maintained piano that is not rewarding for anyone to play or listen to.

We at Fandrich & Sons love the piano and are committed to building moderately priced pianos that are musically comparable to the world's finest and most expensive instruments.

We promise that every piano we sell will be a joy to play.
"I have played many pianos over the past half century and consider myself an expert in judging the quality of the instrument, both the action and of course the sound. The Fandrich & Sons pianos I heard and played during our recent visit were beautiful instruments. One expected the grands of course to be able to produce a big, beautiful sound and they did indeed. But I was nearly knocked off my feet when I heard what the Fandrich & Sons upright pianos could do. In the past the only upright I ever heard which was halfway decent was the old Steinway upright. But it was nothing compared to your uprights. I wouldn't have ever believed that an upright could sound like a grand but as the saying goes... 'Seeing is believing' or in this case 'Hearing is believing'. This should prove a blessing to those who need the sound and performance of a grand but whose limitations of space make it impossible to own one. I add my congratulations to those of many others."
